    Matt Pryor of The Get Up Kids: Pioneer in a Parallel Universe

    Matt Pryor of The Get Up Kids: Pioneer in a Parallel Universe

    In 1995, The Get Up Kids began exploring their surroundings and expanding their horizons in much the way that early Tooth & Nail and Solid State artists did. In the midwest emo scene, they were sharing the stages with bands of seemingly all genres, while making friends in many other states. They didn’t ask permission for what they did, and no one stopped them from blazing new pathways that would connect the regional underground scenes together and really open up the all-ages movement. 

    Matt Pryor, TGUK frontman, currently hosts a Vagrant Records podcast series celebrating 25 years of Vagrant releases. This conversation with Matt gives us a great opportunity to look at the Christian piece of the all-ages scene through the eyes of a personality similar to many on this show, but also with an outsider’s perspective.

    Uncle Mark

    Uncle Mark

    Mark Salomon is a legend and forefather of the Tooth & Nail scene. He was pioneering new artistic and cultural territory while being iconic, professional and a showman 

    all at the same time. 

    He has been massively influential from The Crucified and Stavesacre to Neon Horse and his podcast, Never Was, and his reputation for having solid personal relationships across decades with so many other legends.

    What a rock singer, a podcaster, and great relationships all have in common is the ability to connect & communicate ideas from your mind though your voice.  Everyone loves Mark's voice regardless of what he is doing. If it is his voice expressing his mind, it just works.

    Steve Kleisath- Bizzaro

    Steve Kleisath- Bizzaro

    Welcome back to labeled, the stories rumors and legends of tooth and nail records, I’m your host Matt carter and today’s episode features the not only legendary but iconic drummer Steve Kleisath from Strong arm, Shai Halud, further seeems forever, and the darling fire.  

    He is a legend because he had tremendous  influence on records that were tremendously influential and his style inspired many. 



    He is iconic because he comes in a package that’s different than you might expect.  He  plays left handed on a reverse setup drum kit and plays quirky parts that seem to come from another dimension.  This on top of the fact that Steve has become an a expert at many things including poker and holding world record video game scores.  He clearly has a special mind that accesses information and makes decisions in a uniqe way that has had a big impact. 



    I’ve never spoken to Steve and was very happy to have the opportunity to explore his mind a bit and I think you will enjoy that too. 



    Strong-arm - council of perfection, 

    slick shoes - rusty, 

    stretch arm strong - all we’ve lost, 

    Velour 100 - Your Sky

    Terminal: A False Start

    Terminal: A False Start

    Terminal can be described in many ways. One and Done, One Hit Wonder, Casualty of the industry, a career that seemed over before it began. Similar to Beloved in many ways, with a single album destined for an explosive followup the bands had seemingly failed before their future fanbase could materialize. The bands were able to achieve great things quickly, but weren’t equipped to handle being a touring band. Had they made it just a little further, big things were likely to happen. But instead the band stopped, the members grew up, grew as people, and learned how to be friends. A tragedy and celebration brought the band back and they've become an active again. So its very cool to be experiencing new beginning for Terminal.

    Travis Bryant is an exceptional vocalist and front man who brings real vulnerability to his music and to this conversation, I hope you will get as much from it as I did.

    Hopesfall: A Should've been Solidstate Band

    Hopesfall: A Should've been Solidstate Band

    Hopesfall is a very influential post hardcore/spirit filled hardcore band. They emerged in the North Carolina scene and the greater Southeast with bands like Beloved, Stretch Armstrong, he is legend, Underoath and Luti-Kriss around 2000. they were a Furnacefest band and a Cornerstone band.
     
    They were signed to Takehold Records who was acquired by Tooth and Nail in 2003 but due to some changes in the bands lineup and other factors, Hopesfall rejected the opportunity to be on Solidstate at that time and was allowed to instead sign to Trustkill records. 
     
    This conversation begins with me and Brandon Ebel talking about how he wanted Hopesfall, but it wasn't meant to be.

Love it

Love this so far. So many other bands I’d love to hear from or about. Definitely an episode on Further Seems Forever! Other bands I’d like to hear about would be Halo Friendlies, The Huntington’s, and some of the other less known bands.

Stretch Arm Strong next please

Great show. Let’s hear an episode with Stretch Arm Strong. A criminally underrated band within the Solid State world yet an unbelievably important and loved band within the hxc world.

Most annoying voice ever

If you like hearing a hick talk about pop punk. This is for you.
